The flea market

I went to the Berryessa Flea Market this past weekend for an interesting experience. Someone told me years ago that ferrets were sold there … couldn’t find anything otherwise during my adventure. I was surprised to find out that the market had a MASCOT, which ultimately turned out to be a giant flea (not to be confused with this giant meatball). That’s a lot to get excited about. Also, unlike shopping in the mall, the mannequins had their bottoms facing toward me instead of away to show off that true clinging selling point. I also caught on to parents bringing in strollers they stored their purchases, so they wouldn’t have to rent shopping carts … very clever.
